<nettime> VIDEO: The NSA Surveillance Programs: Assessing The Damage to U.S.


This is pretty good as, for the most part, ex-NSA General Counsel Stewart
Baker and Kevin Bankston of the Open Technology Institute go toe-to-toe on
the impact and solutions to NSA malfeasance.

On *July 18 2014* the *Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee*
<http://www.netcaucus.org/> (ICAC) hosted a panel *The NSA Surveillance
Programs: Assessing The Damage to U.S. Commerce, Confidence & Credibility*
<http://www.netcaucus.org/th_event/nsa-surveillance-whats-the-global-impact-on-u-s-commerce/>.
It has been one year since the sweeping NSA surveillance programs were
revealed by controversial leaker Edward Snowden. As Congress considers
reforming these programs we need to also assess the impact that this
controversy has had on U.S. commercial interests, on our confidence in our
leaders, and on U.S. credibility both globally and domestically. The
revelations could not have come at a worse time for the U.S. tech industry,
which was poised to lead the worldwide market in cloud computing. And many
accounts indicate that other tech sectors are feeling the impact of the
controversy when approaching international markets. Can we quantify the
impact on American business? Have the revelations also impacted the
confidence and credibility of the U.S. government? Some world leaders ???
whose own phones had been accessed ??? have expressed unfeigned outrage about
the scope of surveillance. Our panel will discuss these issues and try to
quantify the impact against some benchmarks. Speakers:* Stewart Baker*,
Partner, Steptoe & Johnson LLP (former NSA General Counsel); *Kevin
Bankston*, Policy Director, Open Technology Institute, New America
Foundation; *Chris Hopfensperger*, Director, Policy, BSA | The Software
Alliance; *Shane Tews*, Visiting Fellow, American Enterprise Institute
(moderator). Video/audio is below. Closed captions are available.
